Why did you choose Navy? “The opportunities you have in the future and the respect people have for these students that come out of the Naval Academy.”

Thank You: “I would like to thank my Parents for all the support they have given me and giving me the opportunities to make this decision. Also I would like to thank my youth coaches Matt Flynn and Brian Bair for always pushing me to my last ounce of fight and making me the relentless kid I am today.
“Lastly Ebe Helm and Jason Christmas for taking me onto the Dukes program and maturing me to the person I am today and helping me with all the recruiting and getting me through the tough times.”
Other schools considered: Maryland, Penn, Rutgers, Highpoint
